Conditional Substitutions[edit]


Conditional Substitutions or just Substitutions, were introduced in Hattrick on the 10th of June 2008. There was an editorial presenting it to the public. There is also a section in the Rules dedicated to substitutions: Rules#Substitutions.

Originally the substitutions were only available in the youth academies for testing, before allowing the same functionality in the senior squads. On the 26th of january 2009 HT announced that substitutions were avaliable for the senior teams in the first league round in the new season, which was global season 38.

Up to five individual orders (#Substitutions and #Behaviour_Change) can be added to any youth game, but note that the limit of three substitutions is always present.


For each substitution you select the player who is leaving the pitch, and the player who will enter the pitch and then the #Behaviour of the new player. Then you add #Conditions for when or if the substitution will be performed.

Behaviour Change[edit]

A behaviour change is applied to a player already on the pitch. You select which player to change, the new #Behaviour and the #Conditions for when or if the change will take place.


  • Inherit (Only for substitutions. Player will inherit substituted players behaviour)
  • Normal
  • Offensive
  • Defensive
  • Towards middle

Condition 1 : After (time) :

Note that if you set a time the condition will be fulfilled at any time after that, when both Condition 2 and Condition 3 also holds true. Example: Condition 1 = 60th minute, Condition 2 = Down, Condition 3 = Ignore red card status. If the match is tied, and your opponent scores in the 73rd minute, the condition will then be fulfilled and the substitution or behavour change will then be performed.
